"It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience," he said.
Polish was in a business class for the management major at BYU–Idaho. One of his assignments was to, with a group, create and run a company for eight weeks, sell a product and shut it down.
Polish's group came up with the idea to use the replica Grandin Press in the David O. McKay Library to print documents and sell them. BYU–I students had attempted to use the press for large-scale projects before, but couldn't secure permission.
This time, however, the library had just purchased enough type to handle a large project.
"The library faculty finally decided, 'Yeah, maybe we should let them do this,'" Polish said. "They gave us the stipulation that we needed to take a really professional log of everything we did."
